Zea Partners is involved in Qualoss and Flossmetrics. We also have
established a close collaboration with other EU research projects.
Very soon, Plone going to be added to projects analyzed by Flossmetrics:
So far, it has been very difficult to establish a link with the OS
Community on these topics. In 2009, I would like to organize a
validation workshop that would involve researchers (who would present
the data they can extract from the Plone/Zope repositories) and
community experts to be found (that could provide feedback on the
quality and interpretation of the data extracted. Before this, I
would like to know if we could find some "quality leaders" within the
Plone and Zope community that could become technical contact points
to provide feedback to the researchers.
All the best,

EU Research investigates the Quality and Socioeconomic aspects of
Libre Open Source Software
The thirty-month QUALOSS project is scheduled to end around March
We are currently negotiating an extension of 6 to 9 months.
I wonder what the quality measurements of Plone will be.
Personally, I think that Plone excels in many areas. The recent
of things are testaments to openness and innovation, both
flourishing in and
around the quality requirements and long-term planning of Plone core.
QUALity in Open Source Software
Business Readiness Rating™ (BRR)
Qualification and Selection of Open Source software (QSOS)
(June 2008) and the related PDF (sixteen pages).
Flossquality - Open source quality research
Software Quality Observatory for Open Source Software
Free/Libre Open Source Software Metrics
That at least four of the sites referenced above are Plone-powered
explains how collaborative software as Plone brings outstanding
to EU research projects.
and by pleasant coincidence, earlier this week I prepared Plone
site for a
five-nation six-partner EU project :)
